Why stay here ...

Set in a quiet, simple and spacious location, Stover Club Site lies next to a beautiful country park on the edge of Dartmoor. If you crave a tranquil break and a wealth of lovely scenic walks, this is the ideal caravan site for your holiday. The Stover Park itself offers a variety of walks - you can choose secure expeditions guided by the Park staff or if you fancy something more challenging the wilder terrains of Dartmoor nearby are waiting to be discovered.

Visitors to Stover Club Site can enjoy the other aspects of Dartmoor by following the nature trail through a lovely valley to see Becky Falls. You can also opt for a leisurely drive to Canonteign for another country park well worth visiting as well as a host of delightful waterfalls. There is also a memorable Heritage Trail near the caravan park called the Templer Way; it runs from Haytor right through to the sea at Shaldon.

Less than a mile away is Trago Mills Family shopping and Leisure Park which includes super karts, trawler boats, steam and model railways plus an interactive animal enclosure so there is something for everyone nearby.

Digital TV signal booster in operation (no lead required).

Please note: this site does not have a toilet block.

Walking notes:

Dartmoor National Park is the largest and wildest area of open country in Southern England, with over 368 square miles of moorland, forest and woodland. Stover Country Park is adjacent to the site, via a public footpath to the rear of the site and along a disused railway track. The park has a lake, walking routes, nature centre, aerial walkway and is great for dogs.

Check out our ViewRanger walk.

Supermarket notes:

The nearest supermarket is the Co-Op next to Trago Mills, 2.3 miles away and with motorhome access. Tesco is just outside Newton Abbot – proceed towards the town and then follow the signs for Newton Abbot Racecourse. Sainsbury's is just off the Penn Inn Roundabout on the A380. Asda is in the town centre.

Stay at stover campsite

Stover Caravan Club Site
The site itself is very nice and although it was busy during our stay was not noisy. The walks in the park are quite pleasant. Although trago mills is a very short distance away you cannot walk to it as there is no footpath along a busy road. One word of warning. The bus service from out side of the site is unreliable and the drivers aren’t the friendliest you will come across so beware of this.

Thank you for a Great Stay

Stover Caravan Club Site
Great no facility site with two busy hardworking wardens. Access to site is good, Stover Country Park next is great especially if you have dogs. Bus stop ideally situated outside, ideal site to be based on to visit the surrounding sights of Devon. We have read a previous comment and would like to give our experience, we had some sad news whilst there and had to change our plans somewhat. Kath was helpful and sympathetic over our news and sorted our trip out by booking us a different site stop on another site and cancelling another along with other help given. Easy to criticise but not until you need their help do you appreciate it. We are very grateful and look forward to returning.

Great small site

Stover Caravan Club Site
Stayed here 10 nights this month. The site was nearly full. We were able to chose plot 17 again near the back of the site where road noise was not a problem. The site is adjacent to the wonderful Stover Country Park. The on site dog walk was good. It was good to see the newly installed barriers and ongoing building of fences. Pete the warden was hardworking and would wave back if a little reluctantly. His wife Kath seemed not to acknowledge our existence when passing 4 feet from her with a smile. Not the friendly type of warden we have met every where else.

Lovely stop-over site

Stover Caravan Club Site
We used this site as a two night stop-over. Having no bathroom facilities was fine as we were in a Motorhome. Our stay was lovely, the site was immaculate and the warden very efficient. There was nearby road noise from motorcycles and barking that was never stopped by a large inconsiderate dog owner, otherwise all good. We would use the site again to break up our journey to and from Cornwall.
